  • Name this band and I'll follow through in Oddbins

    It's about 1978. Or 79. My dad has just bought a radio cassette player. Back home, I conduct some kiddy experimenting with recording from the radio, and record this random piece of music, from a live concert being broadcast. Probably on the BBC. I find out years later the tune they played is 'Can't Be Still', originally done by Booker T & The M G 's. Problem solved, I hear you say. No.

    That tape I had is long lost, but this version I randomly recorded was significantly better and more powerful than the Booker T version. It had someone playing great blues harp on it, the harmonica playing the main hook line ( instead of Steve Cropper's guitar on the original) , and a brilliant guitar break, again, much better and wilder than the rather restrained (but still great) Booker T version. So..who was it? The Blues Band? Dr Feelgood? I suppose 1978 is going back a bit. Any ideas?

      I was thinking along the same lines, but this would indicate that that wasn't until 1980 and it doesn't seem to be included in the setlist - unless of course it's masquerading under a different title....

        'Sight And Sound In Concert' was another BBC series. They would show a concert on telly and broadcast the sound on FM.
        That was around 1978.....

              Not really relevant but what does "I'll follow through in Oddbins" mean in this context?

                It means he will try to fart in an off licence but will accidentally end up shitting himself .

                  It was on a 45 with Soul Limbo too. Should be a cheapie if you still want it.
                  Everyone tear down your own little wall
                  That keeps you from being a part of it all
                  Because you've got to be one with the one and all
                  You've just got to be close to it all

                    If it IS Split Rivitt... I wish my top wants could be bought in M- condition for a whole quid!

                    The Oddbins mention is a reference to Matt Berry's brilliant comedy Toast Of London. I hope...

                      Ah, ok, I thought there was some hidden meaning or something.
                      Why will he do that if he finds out the band?

                            He'll just be excited. Excited enough to shit himself. We've all been there. Oddbins, I mean.

                              I ..just ..don't ..know ..what ..to ..say. You guys really are the greatest. Split Rivitt! (possibly what you get if you do follow through in Oddbins). I've waited 35 long and lonely years in this vale of tears to find that out. I've never heard of 'em. But the youtube vid of their version of Soul Limbo sounds like the mystery group I heard, and the surrounding evidence is compelling..
                              Thanks are in order. so... special thanks to mr bradx (you little beauty) for cracking the case, and sir slim for providing corroboration.
                              thankyou mr plainstone & giantchicken for your earnest investigations too.
                              Also thank you treeboy and the divine one for directing me to a copy. For a quid as well! The less money a record costs, the better the record seems to be.
                              Sad to learn that the fabulous harp player that awoke my tiny musical ears is playing his celestial harp now. Sigh.

                              God bless us, one and all!!
